AT&T is collaborating with Tech Mahindra to build an open source artificial intelligence (AI) platform, Acumos, as a marketplace of AI apps and services. 

Acumos Project code is expected to be available nearer to the platform's launch in early 2018.

Acumos is powered by AT&T Indigo, AT&T's next-generation platform for delivering a seamless network experience. The Acumos platform is built on open source technologies and can federate across the various AI tools available today, enabling easy access for developers and businesses, said the Operator.

The ultimate goal with the Acumos Project is to accelerate and industrialize the deployment of AI at enterprises and get developers and businesses to collaborate effectively.

Hosted by The Linux Foundation, the platform is an extensible framework for machine learning solutions, prividing the capability to edit, integrate, compose, package, train and deploy AI microservices. Simply put, it's an AI marketplace where applications can be chained to create complex and sophisticated AI services. 

For example, someone who wants to create an app that provides analytics for video could use the platform to add features such as location tracking and facial recognition to boost its value. Other AI models in the platform could be used to curate content, build virtual reality (AR) solutions, or provide a framework for autonomous vehicles.

Content curation, autonomous cars, drones, and augmented reality/virtual reality are other areas where AI models could be used with the Acumos platform.
